    Horrible upgrade. More complicated to get get around. Ugly and not so user friendly as it used to be. Loss of functions.

    Great dictionary, but it's irritating that it continually asks to be rated five stars before showing the definition of a word. For the price it cost, I should never be interrupted for that.

    After the American Heritage iOS dictionary crashed and burned I looked for a quality replacement. After a couple of experiments with others, I came upon the Collins dictionary. Its intuitive interface takes you to authoritative information. So my search has a very happy ending. It is my go-to dictionary, used throughout every day.

    I love the depth of regional, archaic, slang, informal, and other usages covered. The fact that is downloaded and therefore always available is another huge plus.
